, it's 9/11, it's americans in a hostile environment, and on our territory, a consulate in libya, yet they went out with the youtube and they stuck with it for so many days. you know, even without the ability of intelligence, i would have at least couched it differently. >> well, you're quite right. they made a terrible mistake. i think what they did was, you know, hope springs eternal. they wanted it to be the youtube and they -- it was much more convenient from the administration's standpoint to have it be the film that nobody's seen. and yet it demonstrated such serious misjudgments on their part to think that they could make it be the youtube, which it wasn't obviously, as time's gone by, and i quite agree with you, that anyone looking at it, knowing the history of september 11th, would at least have registered that that could very well have been part of an organized attack, which apparently now people in the administration have acknowledged, that it was a planned attack. >> greta: is 3is there a conseqe of a misjudgment, or is it something we all chatter about it among ourselves?

was reading the assessments and understanding the threats he knew that this was a difficult environment to operate in as well. it's a horrible tragedy that took place and something that we hope and pray will never happen again but to make political hay and gain out of it, it really doesn't help support the efforts of our people. >> quickly i have to ask you, were you disappointed in the handling of -- ambassador rice came out with the information she had available at the time, congressman king of new york wanting her to resign, paul ryan said in a new interview he would not go that far. again, a lot of moving parts. were you disappointed in how this at least was handled if there is, in fact, now an opening for political gain or genuine questions here? >> well, i think that the attempt to make political gain out of this came forward before any facts were known. it's clear this is a strategy that's being pur sisued by the romney team and unfortunately they're continuing to look for more reasons to make an argument that president obama's foreign policy, which is hands down much more popula

's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hi

. >> sure. >> so as you look forward, how do you invest in an environment that looks like we're going to have easy money for a long time? you've kind of changed the typical asset allocation most people go to. >> oh, yeah, it's a crazy world. at oppenheimer we're talking about the new 60/40. people's portfolios are perfectly positioned for the past. they're positioned for 2008. we're still seeing 30 billion a quarter flowing into core bond funds, which are yielding negative in real terms, below inflation. that's madness from our point of view. investors have to understand that the notion of what is safe and what is risky has to be adjusted a little bit. safe doesn't mean securities that have a lot of interest rate risk and no yield. that is not what safety means to us today. again, given the plentiful liquidity and what we think is a moderate global recovery, we think it's safe to move out into more credit-oriented investments, more higher income investments. >> high yield corporate? >> high yield continues to look good in our view. it's come that lot but far from how tight it can get.

's a dangerous environment, number one for israel, but also for the united states of america, and we keep talking about the arab spring. this is not an arab spring, this is an upheaval in the middle east that we are not taking seriously enough. the threats are huge. alisyn: did these israeli officials and middle east government officials tell you what they plan to do about iran's nuclear threat? >> well, i think -- we didn't get into that detail. obviously they are looking for america to provide the leadership in the middle east that we've provided in the past. their assessment is that america has stepped back, this void has been create, this void is now being filled by radical elements in each of these countries and is making the middle east a very threatening area both a threat to israel and to the west, and to the united states of america. alisyn: i read in your statement when you just returned that what they told you was they want america to be america again. what would that look like? >> well what it would be like, rather than apologizing for a video that is producer in some obscure corner o

luncheon, do you jobs, they say? then i say, are you holding back on hiring because of the environment? they say absolutely. these young people are being denied. over 53% can't find a job even with a bachelor's degree. >> brian: you want to ask us a question? >> yes. the question i want to ask you, if you look at the unemployment rate for the 16 to 24-year-olds, what is the unemployment rate for that group, which includes the college students versus the national unemployment rate? >> gretchen: i'm going to say c. >> steve: 11, 14 or 16. i'll go with gretch, the bigger number. >> brian: i'll go b. >> you're absolutely right. the unemployment rate for young people 16 to 24 is twice that of the so-called national average of 8.1%. that is a startling number. >> steve: how about another question? >> then the other question is: if you were to consider the four years that most college students spent to graduate this year, 2012, how much did the national debt increase while they were studying for four years? >> gretchen: 2.2 trail, 4.6 trillion. i'm going for c again. >> let me tell you, you a

a good speech at the clinton forum which was a hostile environment to come to. i think he kind of got back on the campaign trail. i agree the week was very close, but i would give romney a little bit of an edge this week. gregg: did you see "the politico" story today? they make the following point, romney might be a very good and competent president, but he's a lousy candidate and campaigner. is there something to that? >> well, there is. you know, he needs to get back to being a salesman. he has made this whole campaign about obama is so bad that the country's going to look for an acceptable alternative. the strategy of the obama team is to make him an unacceptable alternative. i think he's done more to make himself an acceptable alternative. and i think the next three, four weeks he's got to basically sell what it is he's going to do with this country. gregg: can we switch around and say the same about president obama, not a good president, but a terrific campaigner? >> well, it's both. i happen to think least a better president, but that doesn't matter, most of the american people

. i think that's really the answer to jobs, because in a zero corporate tax rate environment if the private sector doesn't create tens of millions of jobs, i don't know what it's going to take to create tens of millions of jobs. it's the answer when it comes to exports bleeding out all existing federal tax out of all goods and services. it's the answer to china. i see manufacturing jobs flocking back to the united states given a zero corporate tax rate environment. are you hearing these things from these other two guys? no, not even remotely close. they're arguing over who's going to spend more money on medicare. romney says he wants to balance the federal budget, but that he wants to increase spending for the military. well, it doesn't add up. and if we want to believe in the things that these guys are saying, then i guess we belief in the easter bunny and santa claus and by extension the tooth fairy and, steve, i don't think thai coming. >> host: gary johnson is with us, and want to remind viewers we'll a add a fourth line this morning for third-party voters, 202-585-3883 i
